They're talking about it

"A clever twist on the bullet hell genre, Magenta Arcade is well worth checking out."

Harry Slater from Pocket Gamer

"Now that it’s out, I am delighted with how great the game is."

Christine Chan from App Advice

"Magenta Arcade is definitely one of the best bullet-hell shooter games released in recent times."

Francesco from TouchTapPlay

"... the actual act of playing Magenta Arcade is so cool and such a genius idea that it's worth checking out for that alone."

Carter Dotson from Touch Arcade

"Magenta Arcade is that much more enjoyable than others in the genre, requiring some strategy as well as some fast reactions."

Jennifer Allen from 148apps

"É sempre ótimo poder ver desenvolvedores brasileiros lançando um game de tanta qualidade, ainda mais com uma mecânica inovadora e extremamente divertida."

Pedro Calçada from Sem Tilt

"Mecânica central diferente e interessante: checado. Ideias extras que vão sendo incorporadas com o tempo: checado."

Gabriel Toschi from Game Blast

"Magenta Arcade es puro retro. Gráficos pixelados, en tonos satudaros, old school total. Quien haya vivido el apogeo de las recreativas agradecerá la sensación que este título ofrece al jugador."

MissTrico from El Jugón de Movil

"Un juego divertido y original, diferente con casi total seguridad a lo que habéis jugado hasta ahora. Hay un cierto sentido del humor en todo el planteamiento, los gráficos son brillantes, bien realizados y simpáticos y la banda sonora, bien realizada."
